A man is rushed to the hospital after he was stabbed while waiting in line at a convenience store. It happened inside a Valero on the corner of Greenwood and Horne around 1:30 Saturday afternoon.

Crime scene investigators spent the afternoon gathering evidence.  Officers say the victim was stabbed about 8 times with what appeared to be a kitchen knife while he stood in line inside the store.  The suspect then fled the scene.
